    Side to side is not that important.What you don't want is anything rubbing (housing/bolts rubbing tire), leaning/twisting of the setup, yours looks fine, it will even be better balanced the way you have it.Have fun!

    I hope you got your FD centered now. If not you need to keep the front bracket loose until you have the channel centered over the wheel then you can tighten the bracket up. It looks like the bracket is not level causing the channel to be off center. I hope this helps and i tried to explain what i thought was the problem.
